Topic: Voyages of the Rocinante - Firefly RPG QnA
Subject: The GL

Okay here’s how the books look

You received 1000 credits for the Ice
You received 500 credits for saving the banks
Willow did some fine bartering work and got you 170 credits for the rum and chocolate
You will get 800 for the passengers there and back
Income: 2470 credits

You paid 480 for repairs to Ship/Boat
Fixing the Mule didn’t cost you
50 for port fees
50 for the septic flush and fresh water
3 for new hat
50 for new ballistic vest
Basic kitchen reload (think: passengers) 200
Ammo restock - 17

Expenses: 850

Future Income - 3000 credits for Ice
Future Expense - Fuel refill for Roc - 600
Proper Maintenance - 480 ( more for new parts)

Now I will do a huge "woof" post soon (honestly) and you will be on Beylix. Is there anything you wish to do before takeoff (which I will assume will be in the evening of the same day you are in)? Otherwise I will assume you go about your day and head out. I hope that Robert will post again soon. Blammm is out until I hear otherwise. YeOlde has expressed desire to continue as The Professor.

Topic: Alacrity LOA
Subject: the time has come, the Walrus said, to talk of many things....

As you all know, I have been absent from the inn for a short time. I have been trying to find balance in my life between work, children and personal goals. As you can imagine, it isn't easy. Honestly, I am dealing with many issues on a personal level and I won't bore you with the petty details.

So what does this have to do with you? Well I can not keep up with the games I am playing. Every weekend I am fighting to have a few moments on the computer and I don't write that fast. As a DM, I put a lot of work and time into the games, which I think shows, but I don't have that luxury anymore. I also fret over being able to produce good writing, stories and plotlines. It's my nature, and I don't think it is gonna change now.

So I have decided to step back from the inn for awhile, probably a long while. I will still be around (I have to delete the "last one to Post Wins" thread someday) but not as a major player in the games or the day to day administration. I would resign as a site admin but I know Olan won't accept it. As time goes by, I will be back. I'm always available by email (addiction) or facebook.

The fallout:
I will not be starting the high level campaign I had begun to gather players for. No big loss as it didn't get going.

I am stopping CWWLLO. Sorry, but there is a lack of posting in this game and it is the one game I put the most time and prep into.

I am torn over Rocinante. I love this game and the characters. The module is already written so there isn't much work involved, but the loss of Robert and Blammm make it hard to move the game. I will continue it with only Bro, Tann and Cat but it would be better with more people. However if we continue it will end at the conclusion of this module.

I will continue as a player in Bromern's Star Trek and Almerin's Hell. This will hold me on the inn for awhile.

Topic: Star Trek: The Guardian Saga
Subject: I'm a doctor dammit, not a stealthy ninja

"Ok," Ral began then took a breath and continued, "We are on our own. The L.T. is dead, we have less then eight hours of life support left. We can't contact the Guardian. We have to find shelter.” Ral looked to Pierce, "Doc, the L.T. said something about a facility to the north east. I think we need to head out and now before Curzon's device fails and that fighter finishes us off."

The doctor nodded his head, “He said that there has to be a Dominion facility nearby. Shuttle sensors detected a large energy signatures five or so kilometres north east of our position. He suggested this was the only way we could contact Guardian. Unless Ensign Shral here can whip up a communicator out of phaser parts as well?”

Everyone was in agreement. They were to abandon their defensive position and make for the coordinates that Lt. Kavk had indicated before his death. There was not much else they could do, but it didn’t sit well with the doctor. “One does not simply walk into Dominion outposts. Its airlocks are guarded by more than just sensors. There are the Jem’Hadar there that do not sleep and they are ever watchful.” He said quietly as they prepared to leave. “We have to try but a direct assault would be folly.”

For two hours they moved across the terrain, lead by Ensign Goodhart who was willing to take point. Then there was the signal to stop and they all waited, holding breath to hear if something approached. Pierce stopped and waited, wondering what it was that the Ensign saw but to fearful of calling out to him.

Topic: This was hell
Subject: It's raining men

“I haven’t seen any other people… alive anyway. But I’m sure there must be more.”

Then the sky changed suddenly, as soon as he had finished that last sentence. A rolling sound of anger crawled its way through the clouds at lightning speed. What had been calmed sunset sky changed into a grey, swirling maelstrom that bathed the streets in shadows. As the eye of the storm widened, Cathedral felt his body fade away back to… . he wasn’t sure to what be he’d done this before. When he wanted to leave the …

Suddenly Cathedral opened his eyes and gasped for air. Artificial lights burned his eyes, he struggles to move but his body didn’t respond. People – doctors were running towards him.

“Got a pulse! “

“Cat! Can you hear me?”

“ECG is spiking.”

“Cat! She’s dead. Pull out! Pull out”

In a span of a few seconds Cathdreal found himself back in the blood filled streets. What the hell?” he said outloud. Where did Herman go? There were grey bodies everywhere now - like they rained down from the sky.

Cat! She’s Dead. Pull out!

Without knowing why, Cathedral drew his arm together and focused his mind on a doorway. “A doorway out of here” He mused as a song ran over and over in his head *Back to life, back to reality*.

He gestures and pushed out with his mind, an action that felt second nature to him. When he did, the serpents tattoo on his arms writhed frantically as if alive with power. As he expected, a doorway appeared before him, out of nothing. This was his way home.

But as he stepped toward it, it broke into a thousand shards like an image on a mirror as it is shattered. The pieces fell to the ground and became drops of blood, mingling with the gray bodies and the blood on the streets. Somewhere, a voice whispered in his mind’s eye, “we lost him again.”

He looked around, feeling the despair and depression seeping into him. He fought against it and looked for something to hold onto – anything. He noticed movement and looked towards it, only to see the multi-legged spidery things that were attacking the grey bodies.

"Herman!” he shouted, “Herman! We’ve got to get the hell outta here!”

Perhaps we need a Q&A section for this game?

How much of this do you wish to control Almerin? I have a very distinct idea about my character and his abilities in the "real" world and in the subconscious world - so I know what his actions will be but not sure how far I should go in manipulating or changing the environment.

Baseball would be a lot more exciting if they played it on ice.

But as i understand these fantasy game thingies, once Olan gets the system working, you can tweak it to any game - hockey, basketball, nude volleyball, golf.

Well, I am kidding about the golf. We are talking sports here.

Topic: Voyages of Rocinante - Serenity/Firefly RPG
Subject: the deal.

“That’s enough!” Sung commanded as he fell within a step of the wrestling match, “You’re actin’ like a bunch o’ gorram schoolboys.”

Wyatt’s words stop Dennis from laying out Jimmy with his fist. But Jimmy, too used to doing his own thing to understand the danger in the Captain’s voice, takes advantage of the hesitation and sucker punches his opponent to the kidneys. Dennis makes a gurgling noise and slaps Jimmy across the face. Soon, Asher and Sam have wadded into the fray and pulled the men apart when the doors to the hall open wide.

“I’m sorry, am I late?”

Willow’s entrance was like a light breeze of reason flowing into the room. Dennis and Jimmy stopped fighting and moved away from each other without so much of a curse. The doctor, lit from the back and side by the light of day to capture her allure and beauty, captured the attention of most of the people in the hall, though mostly the men.

“Miss Willow.” JW smiled as he stood up to take her hand and lead the young lady into the room, “I’m afraid that you didn’t walk in during our finest hour, but we are always glad to see you.”

Jimmy attempts to offer his seat to Willow but Chad is there faster, and with an honest if slightly bashful smile. She looked around the room, taking the faces, gestures and body language of everyone she could see. Nora radiated the hostility of an insecure woman, afraid that another pretty woman could take her prize. Brigit, for a moment had a slight smirk to her face, like a cat that just caught a canary. It was gone in an instant, but Willow could not help but feel she just walked into a trap. JW finishes introducing everyone to Willow, telling all that she’s the ship’s doctor.

“JW, Darling? Shouldn’t we get the meeting going?” Brigit interjects lightly, “I’m sure that Miss Willow will get to know as many of the men here as she can before the day’s end.”

“Hmm? Oh yes. Where were we?”

“A sheriff.”

“Oh right. Now Jimmy is right. I have heard of this young fella in Newhouse as well. Pearson.”

“Why are we paying taxes and a sheriff?” Nora asked impatiently “Alliance has to serve the people.”

“I’d prefer a sheriff I can see and talk to than a patrol that may or may not be on the planet.” CC said plainly, “Besides, why did we build a jail if we ain’t gonna have a sheriff?”

Charles stood up, “Listen, I see the people of this town, I talk to them. If you didn’t notice from the disturbance at the bank yesterday, they are wanting a sheriff.”

“How we paying for one?” Sherm asked whiningly.

“If we had a proper Guild Representative, elected by the miners, we could have the backing of the guild to finance a sheriff.” Chad said.

(You may interject your own opinion)

The arguing and ranting continue this way for awhile. With Nora pushing for alliance, Sherm complaining about money and everyone else pushing for a sheriff, a solution seems to be hammered out between the shouting and the egos.

“Well now. I think we can agree on this.” JW said while standing up with arm ups to signal an end to his patience, “We will ask Captain Wyatt to take three of us to Beylix to talk to this deputy and see if we can convince him to come our way. John, Sherm and CC will go as delegates to Newhouse. One more passenger will be Chad, who will hold his election today, and then go to the Beylix miner’s guild house to ratify the vote and therefore gain the guild support in this mess. Captain? You up for four paying passengers to Beylix and back?”

“Five!” interjects Jimmy, “I would like to book passage as well.”

“Huh? Why do you want to go to Newhouse, Jimmy?” Nora asked.

“I have some business there,” He replied stretching out his legs nonchalantly.

Everyone looks at Jimmy as if waiting for an explanation. When none comes JW shakes his head, “As long as it’s your dime Jim-boy. Fine, five passengers at standard rate Captain?”

(It will be two and a half days to Beylix, a day for the job, and two and half back. That’s 160 to 200 credits a person.)

“Whoa! Hang on a sec JW.” Bailey says, “We gonna need more ice by then. We already burned through a good chunk to get started. We don’t want to run dry or we have to dry start again.”

“How long?”

“Two weeks at best.”

JW mused for a bit. “Can you go to Beylix and back, drop off the Sheriff and get over to the comet again to grab ice and be here within two weeks?”

(Sam will answer no. Six days to B and back, then three days to comet, one day of ice cutting and three days back – no way considering if they landed and left alliance would be sure to board them)

“Damn! We need that gorram ice.”

“What if you were to drop off the sheriff in a shuttle along with the others?” Brigit asked, “You wouldn’t have to break atmo, and save a day. Those alliance ships aren’t going to be interested in a shuttle. Then you go to the comet and get back in time?”

(Sam calculates that in his mind and agrees. That would put you just within the two week range, although the sooner you leave the better. He agrees Alliance patrol won’t bother with a shuttle as it is too small to carry ice.)

Well Captain? I don’t want them purple bellies stopping my mine from operating. If you’ll do this, I’ll pay you 3000 for the ice. Three times what you came here for! Plus the fees for passengers? Is it a deal?”

“What are we gonna do until then?” Charles ask, “Two weeks of this lawlessness getting worse and worse. If the bank job wasn’t bad enough? What if a bunch decides to grab the payroll?”

“I’ll stay. I’ll be sheriff until they come back.” Asher interjects and then turns to Wyatt, “They need help Captain and I can’t stand by. Anyway, it will just be until the shuttle comes and then I can keep an eye on it until you return. I ain’t leaving the ship, just – just want to help these people, that’s all, Captain. I know what its like to be alone and no one to look out for ya. It ain’t right.”

OOC: Please note - this is to temporarily write Blammm out of the game. I do hope he will return soon.
